The Maltese Falcon, 1941

Mr. Gutman:
You're a close-mouthed man?
Sam Spade:
No, I like to talk.
Mr. Gutman:
Better and better. I distrust a close-mouthed man. He generally picks the wrong time to talk and says the wrong things. Talking's something you can't do judiciously unless you keep in practice.

Silicon Valley's Tom Perkins named his sailboat, the world's largest, The Maltese Falcon, which is now for sale for 150 million euros.
